Growing up in Colorado in an avid outdoor family gave Brittany a lifelong passion for the outdoors and for working with the earth to produce food. She developed her own student-constructed major titled Ecology and Experiential Education, which included sustainable agriculture, and graduated with a BA from Fort Lewis College in Durango.
Brittany has pursued work and volunteer opportunities for numerous schools and farms across the country, including Regenerative Design Institute, Occidental Arts and Ecology Center, Earthship Biotecture, La Parisa Farm, and Punta Mona Permaculture Institute. Her approach to farming allows the land and community to inform the combination of tools and techniques that are employed.
Brittany joined Open Sky in 2009, initially working as a transporter and field guide. She brings passion, innovation, and flexibility to the Open Sky farm so that it may serve the needs of Open Sky students, the community, and the land.
In her free time, Brittany enjoys growing her own garden, mountain biking, skiing, climbing, running with her dog Shayla, and practicing yoga.
